Our Journey

Choose Love Mural E1

<b>We are awaiting final permissions from the landowner. In the unlikely event that this is not secured, no money will be taken from backers.</b> Iranian artist and refugee, Majid Adin, will paint a giant, colourful Choose Love mural on Hanbury street to create a powerful, unifying message for Refugee Week in the heart of Tower Hamlets. Help Refugees is a grassroots humanitarian movement. We fund over 80 projects across Europe and the Middle East. Our message to the world is Choose Love. This will be the central theme of the piece. Majid is one of Help Refugees' ambassadors. An incredibly talented artist, he won a competition to create the official music video for Elton John's Rocketman. We believe in celebrating our shared humanity in creative, positive ways to foster acceptance, integration and community. With this project we will do just this, working with children from local schools as well as local refugees and asylum seekers.
